Speeding-Related Accidents in Mississippi
Thousands of people are killed every year in high-speed traffic accidents. When a driver exceeds the posted speed limit, maintaining vehicle control becomes more difficult. In 2018, 9,378 people were killed as a result of speeding. Statistics show that high-speed crashes are involved in roughly one-quarter of all traffic fatalities in Mississippi.
A high-speed collision almost always results in more serious injuries. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, speeding has been linked to the deaths of roughly one-third of all motorists in the last two decades. With the help of a lawyer, anyone who has been injured in a car accident caused by a careless or negligent driver may be able to seek compensation.
It takes a long time and a lot of effort to recover from a car accident. Many people are unaware of their legal rights after an unexpected collision. Medical expenses, repairs, and lost wages can quickly add up. As a result, crash victims are vulnerable both financially and emotionally.
